Review: Special Agent Jason West has gotten saddled with super-agent Sam Kennedy. Unfortunately, Kennedy is being watched by Jason’s supervisor and oh yeah, he’s a bit of an arrogant asshole.
It has been a while since I enjoyed a mystery this much. From page one I was hooked.
Jason has a history with the town and the Huntsman. A history that he chooses to keep to himself. Kennedy has earned the wrath of some higher-ups in the FBI, but we’re kept in the dark as to his exact crimes. The result is that I couldn’t help but put both men on my list of suspects.
Then there was the romance. Forgive my political incorrectness, but they are such guys. They kind of fell into bed with each other, but god forbid they should talk about feelings and relationships.
As for the bad guy, I had my suspicions early on, but got caught by a few red herrings. Readers of James Patterson will appreciate the succinct writing style and well-crafted plot.
